It’s nice to see a guy do something nice on Valentines Day without having a motive behind it. That’s exactly what happened when Hayden Godfrey decided to give every girl in his HS a flower for V-Day.
Smithfield resident Hayden Godfrey, 17, saved for a year and a half to afford the $450 it cost to purchase 900 carnations from an online wholesaler, he told ABC News today. He began earning the money by working as a cook at a nearby McDonald’s and a dishwasher at a Mexican restaurant, and for the last 10 months, he’s been bagging groceries at a local store.
The gargantuan gesture resulted from years of buildup and planning. Every Valentine’s Day since he was 14, Godfrey would anonymously send flowers to dozens of his friends, he said. Each year, the project grew larger in scale until he ultimately decided he wanted to make “as many people as possible” happy this Valentine’s Day.
Hayden has a girlfriend, in case you thought he was trying to simultaneously hit on every girl in his school at once.
Hayden explained why he decided to give everyone a flower via Facebook:
This is better than any $200 date I’ve heard about on Twitter.
